A week ago, I purchased a NYPD Memorial bracelet to honor the members of the NYPD who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks. My bracelet has the name of Michael Curtin, ESU Truck 2. I wear the bracelet daily in memory of those who served and lost their lives that fateful day. I say a prayer daily for Michael, his wife, his three girls, and all of the fallen officers. After reading and learning about Michael, I can truly say he is and was a true hero. God bless.

I had the privilege to grow up with Mike. We joined the Marine Corps together after High School, and then we both went on to become Police Officers. He was always there for me, as he was for all. The word "can't" was not in his vocabulary. I recently met a Nassau County Detective, who noticed I was wearing one of my many Mike Curtin tee-shirts. I told him how I grew up with Mike. He looked at me with sincerity in his face and stern voice and told me that Mike was his 1st. Sgt. in the Marine Corps and that Mike was the reason that he became a Police Officer. Let us not forget Mike's wife and his girls, who are just as amazing as Mike. We miss you, Mike. Semper Fi!

I was honored, and extremely fortunate, to have had Michael Curtin as my Platoon Sergeant during our tour of duty at Marine Barracks NWS Earle NJ. I got to see his professionalism and dedication to duty on a daily basis. I can fully visualize Michael's unselfish heroism in his efforts to save lives on 9-11. He is a true American hero, and I will never forget him. Semper Fi and God Bless!

I did not have the honor of meeting Michael, but I wear a bracelet with his name on it in his memory. I wear it as a reminder that life is precious. And whenever I feel like I can't accomplish something, I look at his name, and it keeps me going. The Sheriff's dept I worked for went to NY to assist in the recovery efforts after 9-11. It was such a moving experience, I will never forget it. I wish his family well. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

3 years ago I visited New York on a field trip, and we went to see what's left of the twin towers. We also went to the church of 9/11. Everything was so real. After I'd seen how many families lost a loved one, then I wonder, "What if I was there?"

My name is Jesse Curtin I am the grandson of Andrew Joseph Curtin who resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My Grandfather is a distant cousin of Michael, and I would like to send my deepest regrets to his wife and daughters. Although I never met Michael, I feel a strange bond to him. I have always wanted to be a police officer, and Michael's story has only made that feeling grow. Michael was a hero, giving his life to try to save others, not only on Sept. 11, but also in 1993 when the WTC was bombed and in 1995 when he found the body of a fellow Marien and took several hours to pull him out. On that day he remarked, "we never leave our brothers behind." This touched me on so many levels when I read it and shows the loyalty and heroism that Michael had. He was a good man and will always be in my heart. I love you Michael, and God Bless You.

I didn't know Mike Curtin on a personal level, but my son Peter attended school with Mike's daughter Erika since they were in elementary school. I asked my son when he came home from school that day if anyone he knew at school had been affected by the attacks and I was deeply saddened when he told me, "Yes, Erika Curtin's Dad is missing." I remembered what a sweet young lady Erika is and how proud her parents are of her. After reading elsewhere how loved and respected Mike Curtin was by all who knew him, and how dedicated he was to his family, friends, The Marine Corp and The NYPD, I can see why his daughter is as wonderful as she is. As the saying goes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I'd like to say thank you to Sgt. Curtin for his devoted service to all of us and may God bless him and his family.
